For as long as Christopher Rizzo can remember, he has wanted to tell stories. From dictating Star Wars-influenced fantasies for his mother to transcribe in the first grade, to spending his elementary school years drawing and writing comic-books to share in the school yard (only to have them later confiscated), to writing amateur novels throughout High School and College, Rizzo's desire to entertain and horrify others with his imagination has been a constant.
After studying movie production at the New York Film Academy, Rizzo has staked out a career as a film/video editor in commercials, documentaries, and feature films. With a drive to take on a multitude of creative projects, Rizzo set out to create his own brand. Thus, Dark Ink Pictures was born.
Dark Ink Pictures serves as a venue for Rizzo to express his artistic vision, which encompasses comics and graphic novels, short and feature films, music, and podcasting. In addition to showcasing his own art, Rizzo hopes to use Dark Ink Pictures as a way to get other like-minded creative feet in the door, and to create a community of driven artists sharing the unquenchable desire of personal expression.
